Then it happened. My Charcoal......the fire........everything BURNT OUT on the lava island on the center while trying to tame two of these. Then I added in Charcoal to their slots because my weight was full. I came back........all the Charcoal was gone. THEY EAT CHARCOAL GUYS! ITS NOT TOO EFFECTIVE, BUT THEY EAT CHARCOAL!
Tame these while riding a scorpion! Nothing will aggro unless you attack. Tame with rotten meat in your hotbar so u don’t have to dismount. Works for Dung Beetles/Centipedes/Spiders. Walk in, choose level, tame passively, walk out and request to the surface 👍 good luck
Easiest and safest way to tame this is to lure it under water. They stop aggro and you can tame as you please. Just make sure you come up for air every once in a while. Also be sure the water is deep enough.
